Parramatta playmaker Tim Smith is in the news again - for all the wrong reasons.

The Eels playmaker was reportedly involved in a bar-room scuffle with Australian national team cricketer Michael Clarke on Sunday night and subsequently thrown out by bouncers at Cronulla hotel Northies.

Smith allegedly pushed Clarke after a heated argument in front of other patrons at the pub at about 10pm, News Limited reported.

A patron at the club, who was witness to the incident, said the pair had to be broken up by security.

"They were in each other's faces. Then Smith pushed Michael Clarke and he got kicked out," the patron said.

It is understood Smith, who was drinking with teammate Mark Riddell, then moved on to nearby nightclub Fusion.

Smith's manager David Rioli said he had not discussed the matter with the young star, who is in camp with the Eels at Wyong ahead of their bye this weekend.

"As far as I know it wasn't a major incident," Rioli told the News Limited newspaper.

Just over a month ago the reigning Dally M Rookie of the year turned up drunk for Eels training along with Riddell and was stood down from first grade.

NB: this is just disgraceful!

I don't see why this sort of stuff has to make it onto the news.

A scuffle isn't really news.

No, you're right it's not. But on the other hand, if you are a high profile person in this world and you are some what famous then whatever you do always gets put as headline news

Tim Smith is having a shocker of a season, both on and off the field.

I'm wondering why these two are even still playing? They are getting too much. Just stand them down for the rest of the year! Really what are they learning if they keep doing something stupid (and who knows maybe next time it might be alot worse) and still getting to play! :evil:

If he put his problems aside, he wouldn't be a bad player for our club.
